Chowdah and Service!

Bit of a dive pub feel, but the service was top notch (thanks Joe!) and the clam chowder was fantastic.

The food at Fishmonger's is OK,nothing more nothing less. It's a nice place though because the service is very friendly and there is nice view.

Went with family for late lunch, waitress cold and unfriendly.... Ordered clam chowder...... Pasty and bland, lobster roll below average... To top it off the "local" oysters were tiny and SPOILED so I wonder how long they were sitting around. Save your money and go elsewhere... To bad as location is great

We have often visited the Fishmonger and had inconsistent results, food wise. The view, however is worth the price of admission--out over the channel between Wood's Hole and the Elizabeth Islands. Get a window seat.

This place was ideal for a quick dinner. The guys who work there were some of the friendliest, most accommodating people we met. The Chili-Lime Shrimp was outstanding!! Very clean and welcoming with a great view of the water. Perfect location.

The food is generally good but this past summer has had less variety that with the previous owners. Still a good value and you can't beat the view of Woods Hole Harbor!
